S and I are always on the lookout for new restaurants in the UTC area since, well, we live here. So when we noticed a new restaurant in the Regents Pizzeria plaza on Regents Park Row, Micheline’s Pita House, of course we had to pay a visit.
There’s a big menu above the ordering counter – there’s actually a separate menu to the right for salads, which I forgot to take a picture of… oops!
As you can see, it’s one of those customize-your-own meals – pick the type of meal you want (bowl, pita, plate, etc.), protein, toppings, sauce, etc.
For our first visit, S and I both chose bowls. We were there for a late-ish dinner (about 8:30p), and they had ran out of several of the meats.
The rice bowls include a protein of choice (he picked ground beef kabob), and topped with a salad – lettuce, tomato, onions, cucumber, and pickled radish, with a vinaigrette dressing. You also choose a sauce, and S chose the spicy “shoug”. I really enjoyed this bowl – the kabob was juicy and tender, and the shoug sauce was pretty spicy. The salad tasted pretty good mixed into the rice, too; I especially liked the pickled radishes, which I thought went well with the overall flavor profile.
